I like Mantha, but I feel as if we need a true playmaker, a player who makes everyone around him better. Like a Henrik Sedin or a John Tavares. You can basically play a pylon with both of them and the pylon would be good for 20+ goals (true story just ask Anson Carter). Mantha I think is more of scorer.

Someone who intrigues me in the mid first is Frederik Gauthier. He's listed at 6'5 everywhere I've checked and all the write ups on him seem fairly positive. Plays all situations, excels in pressure situations, good hockey IQ, great skating and hands.
It wouldn't take much to move back & gain an extra pick or use some assets to gain another first rd pick. Having two mid-1st-rd-picks to get both those guys would make it an interesting draft as well.
